Hardly anyone experiences Lewis Hamilton shy and reserved. But when it comes to his music, the Formula 1 long-term winner turns from a tough racing driver to an embarrassed boy. "I didn't dare, I don't know why, maybe it was insecurity, fear, too much thinking," wrote the six-time world champion in an Instagram story after revealing a long-kept secret.

Lewis Hamilton claims Formula One is trying to slow down Mercedes amid plans to ban the use of high-power modes in qualifying, though the world champion is not concerned.

A ban on powerful engine settings used specifically for qualifying has been flagged, with the FIA warning teams it intends to clamp down on the mode from the next round of the championship – the Belgian Grand Prix.

As Hamilton, who has won three races this season to be 30 points clear in the drivers' championship, prepares for Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix, the defending champion addressed the change.

‘Party mode’ or ‘qualifying mode’ – whatever you may call it – a possible ban on powerful engine settings used specifically for qualifying has got F 1 drivers talking, and Lewis Hamilton said it’s “not a surprise” that an advantage Mercedes and their customer teams have could potentially be quashed.

"It's not a surprise, they are always trying to slow us down," Hamilton said. "But it doesn't really change a huge amount for us, so it's not a problem.

"At the end of the day the guys at our team have done such a great job with the engine.

"This is obviously to slow us down but I don't think they will get the result that they want. But that's totally fine if they do."

FIA secretary general Peter Bayer wants engines to run in a single mode throughout the race, removing the adjustability of power between practice and qualifying.

Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas added: "We are not panicking about it. The first thing that came to my mind was that in races every team has different modes how much they want to risk [the engine].

"If there was the same engine mode for everyone there could be less overtaking because everyone is just running same modes rather than playing with them and sometimes using more or less power."
